Amps to Watts


P (power)
_______________________

I(amps) x E(voltage)

Simple delta equation. Use 2 known to find one unknown value. The horizontal line represents divide if you forgot the basic math.

Amps to Watts


Power = voltage x current or watts

Search Ohms law for more detailed equations.

Amps to Watts


Simple, for people like me who really need it to be simple. Divide your total watts by the voltage. example:

1200 watt hair dryer operating at 120 volts,
1200 divided by 120 equals 10 amps.

And I like all kinds of pie.

You gotta crank the handle of the tub a lot of times to get ice cream! Or you could always use some kWh's by way of a rotor...
